"Hollywood's biggest party" went off without a hitch. Forest Whitaker gave one of the most genuine acceptance speeches. In fact, he really was at a loss for words, getting emotional and giving us all a real glimpse of what it was to be grateful.
On the other end of things, Sacha Baron Cohen -- aka Borat -- had the house in stitches with a hilarious speech. He may have checked Borat at the door, but the crazy Kazakh journalist was definitely there in spirit.
On the carpet it was a feast for the eyes
as the stars showed off their fashion savvy
. There was lots of white, but overall color prevailed, with green, royal blue and purple taking center stage.
Looking like a purple princess was the very pretty "Ugly Betty." TV star America Ferrera told me she was proud to be nominated for a show that projected a great message.
Overall, the Golden Globes provided a night of celebration. Now, off to the next big awards show -- the mack-daddy of them all -- the Academy Awards!
